Are we ready? Are we ready? How we said? Okay. Oh boy. This is Deputy Police Chief Robert DeVine


and he's going to read you. Oh the place he's going to go. It's 2014 and Deputy Police Chief Robert


DeVine is reading at the Stoughton Library Teddy Bear Story Hour, a program for kindergarten children


in town. I read this to my little girl a lot and the main reason is because it's about growing up


and doing what you want to do when you grow up. You're hearing a divine as his professional peak in


2014. His 15th year on the job at Stoughton. He was in many ways the public face of the department,


a leader during FBI corruption probe years earlier. Andy had mentored hundreds of kids in his role


as head of the police explorers program. Congratulations today is your day. You're off to great


places. You're off in a way. You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can


steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own and you know what you know and you


are the guy who decide where to go. In less than a year though, DeVine would be suspended and later


demoted for his role in a sex scandal. And in 2022, he would resign after an internal investigation


show this inappropriate actions with Sandra Birchmore and other young girls. He brought me into this


closet and I had no idea what was about to happen and he looked at me. I'm standing in front of


him going slowly picked me up, sat me on the desk, kissed my forehead. You know, and he


because he knew I was upset because he was getting married with banner flip flapping once more.


You'll ride high ready for anything under the sky ready because you're that kind of guy.


This is the case season two episode two.


All three men, the Fowler brothers in DeVine, violated their oaths of office and should never


have the privilege of serving any community as a police officer.


Through a sustained and deliberate combination of lies, deceit and treachery, they violated the


policies and the core values of the Stoeton Police Department. Not to mention human decency.
